I've tried everywhere to find an answer and I'm hoping someone can help. I run QLC+ live during shows to control my lighting. Light ques are triggered through QLC+ via midi sequence ques on my synthesizer. QLC+ does not run in the background, it's in front because I do make some live cues as well. I've now added a laser to my show, ILDA through FB3QS & Quickshow 4. Problem: I need to be able to trigger Quickshow ques from QLC+ and both are running on the same computer. I tried midi and can control Quickshow from QLC+ but can't trigger ques. I used Bome's midi translator to send keystrokes from QLC+ to Quickshow, and it worked, but (I'm guessing) unless Quickshow is the "active" program in "front" it doesn't hear the keystrokes. I need my lighting control software (QLC+) to be in the forefront while I'm performing. Quickshow can be controlled remotely via DMX but I'm not aware of any "virtual" DMX connection I can make between two programs running on the same computer. I can't be the only person who's had this issue right? Is there a solution? All I need to do is control Quickshow ques from my lighting control software on the same computer. ANY information would be so greatly appreciated! Please note I don't have the option to upgrade to Beyond, it's just too expensive - i have to find a work-around.
